Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone for the price I waited a while b4 doing this review and I must say I am very very happy I did. The p8 lite 2017 has amazed me the only thing I wish is that it had preloaded memory but other than that I have no problems with the phone the speaker is loud the phone response is quick the camera is great and the battery lasts very long. The phone looks and feels great it's a little slippery but any case can change that the phone itself is worth every penny I have a blue one and I must say it is very stylish I needed a replacement for my iPhone 6 and I can say I'm happy I chose this phone it has everything I need and more my next phone may just be another huawei.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from awful slow, often unresponsive. i.e. it takes several swipes before it actually acknowledges i'm trying to do something on it. worst phone i've had in years which is even more disappointing as the 2 previous huawei phones i had were excellent. total let down

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really great phone with just 1 little issue Great phone! Great build quality and really good spec! However it does suffer from a tiny bit of lag sometimes most noticeable when opening the camera for use! It's definitely not the spec of the phone causing this but more like how the system handles the 3gb of RAM, software update could fix this I'm sure. Still a very good option at this price range.
